It all started with chile peppers! The Ortega Chile Packaging Company was born in late 1800’s when Emilio, the son of Maria Conception Jacinta Dominguez Ortega, moved to California and founded the first commercial food operation to preserve and package chile peppers, seeds for which he brought with him from New Mexico. Just like Mama Ortega, Emilio took great pride in the food he prepared and focused on providing the highest quality peppers to create the very best salsas and chiles.
Serving ideas: Add diced chiles to all of. your favorite dishes, as well as salsas or scrambled eggs or as part of omellets to give them authentic Mexican taste. Stuff chiles with cheese, tuna, or any fillings you like. Make delicious queso and chile quesadillas for a fun dinner choice.
Tips for filling Chiles Rellenos: Fillings can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, then brought to room temperature before stuffing chiles. Make sure they are at room temperature or slightly chilled. If fillings are hot, the juices will flow out and cause the coating to slide off. Use enough filling to stuff each chile relleno as completely as possible; but not too much that the seam won’t it hold together.
